How can I consider the flexibility of a cross-laminated timber plate in a wall-liked load?


The flexibility of a timber wall is calculated using the slip modulus. For a 4-mm-nail, there is flexibility amounting to 793,981 N/mm pro shear plane at a common C24-timber. Now, it is also necessary to consider the mean value of the stiffness and the partial safety factor, which is omitted in this example. The distance of the applied nails then gives the required longitudinal stiffness of the connection.
